It looks like your kernel does not have support for your chipset. What
chipset is it? Failing that, what motherboard?

I had this particular problem; the solution was to enable local APIC
support in the kernel but turn the APIC off in the BIOS setup. The
kernel now gets past the point where it locked up, happily re-enables
the APIC and runs just fine.
